|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I notice details and am very adamant about helping writers bring their stories to their full potential. I will offer suggestions on anything and everything. I have a photographic memory, so I usually only need to read a story once in order to properly edit it, which makes me fast and efficient. I'm up late at night, being a crazy night owl college student and all, so I'm pretty easy to get a hold of and ask to beta something.
If you want my help, you have to be serious about improving your story and serious about finishing your story. I'd prefer you at least TRY to do the characters justice. As in, don't portray them completely OOC, but if you do, it's not the end of the world.
As always, don't hesitate to ask. The worst I can say is no!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at catching grammatical errors such as improper tense, disagreeing verb tenses, the wrong form of words (their, there and they're) and spelling errors. I notice the little things such as wordiness and help people to pick the right pronoun, adjective, noun... whatever. I am also good at helping with transitions between paragraphs.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My punctuation, such as comma usage, is a little lacking. My conclusions are not always strong and sometimes I use too many details. Sometimes I have run-on paragraphs that should be divided into more than one, instead of a giant block.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love Batman, Criminal Minds, NCIS, Star Wars, X-Men, and other assorted super heroes. I'll beta pretty much anything, as long as you really want to improve your story.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd prefer not to beta smut. Some sexual content, sure, but not pure smut. Also, I'm not really into crossovers, so I don't think I'd be a very good beta for those kind of stories either. Umm... anything Satanic, yeah, I'm 99.9% likely to say no.
